Real weddings Country

Are you planning a country wedding? Do you love the idea of being surrounded by rolling hills and the beauty of the countryside? If the answer is yes, you have found yourself in the right section, the one for country weddings. Even if you live and work in the city, you grew up in the countryside and always knew that you wanted to get married there. Does this sound like you? Or perhaps you did not grow up in the country, but just love spending time there with your partner. Whatever reason for your decision to get married in the country, you will find plenty of inspiration when it comes to real country weddings in the section. Perhaps you love the idea of getting married in a country house hotel or having a marquee or tepee in a field? You will hopefully find plenty of ideas when it comes your venue whilst looking at our country weddings. When it comes to wedding dresses for country brides, here at Style & the Bride, we think there is no greater inspiration than looking at the dresses of our real brides. Country brides often opt for romantic wedding gowns, and lace is always popular. You will also find inspiration in this section when it comes to country bridesmaid ideas, as well as decoration ideas for your ceremony and reception. For country weddings, there is nothing nicer and more stylish than trying to incorporate nature into your reception i.e. tying your napkins with ribbon and lavender or leaving miniature bottles of honey as wedding favours. You will also find ideas in this country weddings section for country grooms, country flower girls/pageboys and many more aspects of your big day. Enjoy!
